10 Years Ago: Steven Tyler Fell Off the Stage at Buffalo Chip
Every now and then South Dakota makes national news for something. Ten years ago it was for a Rock n Roll Hall of Famer going down for the count.
August 6, 2009 was the day, or actually the night, when Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler fell off the stage at the Buffalo Chip and broke his shoulder and ended up with a few stitches in his head.
It was only about half way through the show and it was called off, which was a huge bummer for the throngs of people who came to the show. It was not made up.
The accident occurred during "Love In an Elevator." To make a lame pun, Tyler was living it up while he was going down? Tyler was airlifted to a hospital and later went back to Boston.
